Are there any games that nobody has full achievements on?

#1 Posted by robohasi (13 posts) -

I heard Gears of War 3 was pretty hard with the Seriously 3.0 achievement that required you to get all medals, but there are still people that got that. Does anybody know of any uncompleted games out there?

IIRC, there are some achievements that are busted in some older games [citation needed] that nobody can get.

Other than that, there's always some asian kid or other suitably hardcore individual who will have all of the achievements in a given game. It's like the law or something.

Yep, every publisher has a private asian kid who plays through the game, S-ranking it the minute it comes out. 
You can see their names in the credits if you take the first letter from every name, reorder them, and then cross-translate it with the Fez language. 
The weirdest part of it is that most of them are called Steve...

Smash TV has an achievement that is glitched and unobtainable.....the people that have it unlocked hacked the game to unlock it.

I would just like to say that I have a japanese cousin who can beat the shit out of me on any game. He is 6.

Edit: This is not racism. It is a fact.

I think a Hellboy game released with fewer than 1000 points because it was going to have free DLC to add the rest in, but it never came out, so the only way to get them is by hacking.

Naruto Rise of the Ninja has roughly 600G that can't be obtained in my experience. Game is glitchy as all hell.

I'd be willing to bet that very few people have all the achievements in DOAX2 the stuff you gotta do in that game is SO time consuming.

Who said racism has to be offensive? Racism is a generalization made about a race. Saying, "All asian people are smart" is still racist even if it is a compliment to the race. Generalizations about a culture or people are bad because they are false given their blanket nature. Doesn't matter how kind or mean they are.

Stereotypes and racism are different beasts. Racism is inherently derogatory in its nature.

No, they aren't different. Racism is a stereotype based on race.

"Racism - the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, esp. so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races."

If I say, "White people are successful and wealthy," I'm being racist. If I say, "Asian people are super smart," I'm being racist. If I say, "Black people are great athletes," I'm being racist. Don't think that you can make it ok by calling it a stereotype. If you make a judgement based on race, you are being racist. It doesn't matter if you are complimenting or insulting.

Tiger Woods 06 had the most busted achievements in the history of busted achievements...people managed to get them through hacking and perhaps being lucky, but other than that, I think every legit game has somebody s rank it.

That's not really a useful definition though, that would make everyone that generalizes (so basically everyone) racist.

#16 Posted by Jrinswand (1699 posts) -

@jozzy: Yep. If somebody makes a generalization, either positive or negative, about an entire race of people then that person is acting in a way that is racist.

Humans are predisposed to liking people similar to them in as many ways as possible so... yep.

On topic? I'm certain that a game where no one has all of the achievements exists. But I'm also certain that it's probably either so shitty that literally no one cared, or it's glitched out.

Anyone who generalizes based on race is racist. I don't think the definition can be any clearer than that.

If somehow you don't think that is wrong, then you condone racism. "Everyone" does not make judgements based on race, or at the very least, many people recognize when they are making such generalizations and make efforts to avoid that kind of thought pattern. Racism may be ingrained in a lot of society. Doesn't make it any less wrong.

Its nearly impossible to answer the OP's question since hacking your gamerscore happens so often.

I'm not arguing the number of people that are or are not racist. But even if the majority of people are racist, it doesn't mean they aren't racist or that racism is ok. The definition still stands whether we want to admit it or not.

So it's simply semantics? On that note, let's just use teh internetz!

From Dictionary.com:

a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among thevarious human races determine cultural or individualachievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

Note that it says "usually" after saying it's a belief that each race has inherent differences. This means that generally speaking, you're right and racism is considered bad. But that's just an association we've made. Semantically speaking, "racism" is just a stereotype that we apply to all members of a certain race. It's not necessarily a bad stereotype (e.g. all Asians are smart, all black people play sports better). It's just that in social conversations, we attribute negative things to the term racism.

This doesn't make racism OK, either. A positive stereotype can be a bad thing. Say a teacher expects an Asian student to do better than everyone else and subconsciously is harder on that kid's essays than any of the white or black students, or that a group picks the black kid to play on their basketball team because they think he'll automatically be better and ridicule him when he turns out to be no better than them at the game.

So, you can be either right or wrong depending on perspective. Perspective is another great topic to discuss and it's easily relate-able to race, but that's another post for another thread. For now:

@Jrinswand @SuperSambo @BrockNRolla: Racism implies hatred. Stereotypes do not. Please, for the love of God, can you guys show up in a topic and actually keep it ON TOPIC for once?

Anyways, I know there is an achievement in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing that glitches out for some people. It's the achievement to get all the achievements. I totally have it though, first playthrough. That seems to draw the ire of some achievement whores out there.

I also know that BFME2 is pretty much impossible since they took the online servers down.

I'm also 100% convinced that there is no humanly possible way to S-rank DMC4 without selling your soul to the fucking devil!

If I'm responding to something contained within the OP then I'm on-topic. Also, according to Wikipedia, apparently nobody agrees on what does or does not constitute racism, so it looks like we're all right!

Achievements are racist? What?

#26 Posted by Zlimness (549 posts) -

The Final Fantasy 11 achievements are apparently kind of messed up. Max out each class.

#27 Posted by jakob187 (21662 posts) -

You know what other game has some achievements you will never get?

NBA Elite 11. Fuck, I would LOVE to find a copy of that and S-rank it!

Challenge. Accepted. Anybody want to donate a Kinect and a copy of Hole In The Wall?

Pretty much all the 360 games I own currently which are sonic generations, witcher 2 and a bunch of downloadable games like neiuxz and nba jam.
